Link: SCS @ CHA.

I’ve been incredibly blessed in the past to have the opportunity to attend CHA.

Every year, the Craft & Hobby Association hosts a MUY BIG trade show, with manufacturers, retailers and other industry professionals from all over the world gathering to see every possible crafting product you can imagine.

Due to scrapbooking being the #1 hobby in the USA, the exhibit will be dominated with paper crafting and art stamping related manufacturers, all unveiling new product lines, tools, etc.

I’m fortunate and excited to be attending this year with Daven Nolta, Founder and CEO of Splitcoaststampers.com  We’re looking forward to sharing CHA through a special blog, linked up above, and hope you will join us, as we share the the fun of whatever crosses our path as we roam the show!

As always, you know who I’m *most* excited to get the opportunity to shake hands with once again!!!  I’m not gonna hold my breath, but, if my hero Carol Duvall is in attendance, well, I hope I don’t become a blubbering/stammering idiot like I did the last time . . . (nsert rolling eyeballs)

And, yes, preparations for the above, has been keeping me mightily busy the last few weeks, but I couldn’t let the cat outta’ the bag ’til today! (bouncin’!)

Check out SCS’s blog–I’ll be reporting from there daily about the show!


  1. Thanks for keeping us posted, Julie! Also, thanks for posting the link to your lovely paper rose. I have seen that die several times but didn’t have the imagination to realize that it could look vintage-y instead of only flat and graphic. . . :oops:

  3. great news! i’m excited too – we leave on sunday. hope our paths cross…i’d love to meet you. i know where ellen is going to be -definitely heading there to meet her.
